NISSAN CUBE RADIATOR PROBLEM

2002 Nissan Cube • 177,000 miles

Water is not staying in the radiator after the engine has been started for about five minutes in the Nissan Cube Vehicle. The Check Engine Light came on with the P1217 Error Code (Engine Over Temperature). The error code was cleared, however that did not solve the problem. What can cause this particular problem. I am looking forward for your comments. Thank you.

Clearing a code does nothing. The problem must be fixed first.

You need a pressure test on the cooling system to determine the leak

There is no visible leak on the radiator hose. If the radiator cover is open and the vehicle is started, After 5 mins the water is coming out from the top of the radiator.

You may have a bad head gasket. From overheating
